Elaine Gibbs began her life in music at age 13, where she got her start, as many R&B phenomena did; in church. The church experience still greatly influences her vocal ability today.
The country fell in love with Elaine during her appearance on Season 1 of The X-Factor, as one of over thirty finalists. She wowed the judges with her interpretation of “Stop Crying Your Heart Out” by Oasis. LA Reid, Simon Cowell, Nicole, and Paula Abdul commented, “she is one of the best singers they had ever encountered.”
Elaine lent her heartfelt and emotional voice to a music video for TV 1’s Black History Month called, “Martin Can You Hear Us”; designed to reconnect Americans to the importance of Dr. King’s teachings.
She has performed in over 25 countries and worked with some of the biggest names in gospel and R&B such as Rev. James Cleveland,
Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Tramaine Hawkins, Shirley Caesar, Kenny Lattimore, Bobby Womack, Cherrelle, Miki Howard and the Gap Band. On a broader scale she has sung for Rod Stewart
and performed at galas honoring Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Angela Bassett, Stephanie Mills, and Chaka Khan.
Elaine produced a benefit for Minority AIDS Project in 2008 “A Salute to Donny Hathaway”, held at LA based, Nate Holden Performing Arts Center. Elaine called on her friends from the entertainment industry such as Kenny Lattimore, the late lead singer for the Temptations, Ali-Ollie Woodson, TC Carson (Actor), Annie McKnight (BET Comedian),
Norwood Young (Vocalist), and Desiree Coleman (Vocalist).
Receiving a standing ovation, as she performed a soul-stirring tribute to Aretha Franklin, Elaine wowed the audience during the 28th Annual HIV/AIDS fundraising event produced by Sheryl Lee Ralph; “Divas Simply Singing”.
Currently, Elaine is in the studio working on her latest album. The single that’s causing quite a stir across the country is “Yes God is Real”
and is currently available at all digital outlets.
